Pastor Philip Mantofa was born in Surabaya on the 27th of September, 1974. From his birthplace, he went on to study abroad in Taipei, Singapore, and finally, he repented during his high school days in Vancouver, Canada.
Two years after he received his undergraduate degree in theology from Canada, as riots broke out in Indonesia in May 1998, he decided to return to his homeland for the sake of preaching the Gospel. The Rose of Sharon Church he leads has become one of the fastest-growing churches with around 100,000 members found in numerous locations nationwide and beyond. To date, strong local churches have been planted throughout Asia, in Australia, Europe and the USA. Currently, he serves as the senior pastor of the church network and organization. His vision is to build 1000 strong local churches with 1,000,000 disciples of Christ. His heart’s burning desire is to see nations experience and encounter the love of Jesus Christ.
In addition to his passion for revival, he started painting professionally in 2014. Thereafter, hundreds of his dreams and visions have been depicted by his own fingers on canvases, and they have deeply spoken to, impacted, and anointed the lives of many. Not until he turned 40 when he realized that painting is a great way to preserve visually his prophetic insights which carry powerful messages that are life transforming. He unflinchingly shares his spiritual revelations and illustrations with the purpose of leading and drawing men into the hope and power of Christ’s redemption. He is also the author of "Before 30," “Warrior For Revival,” "Holy Spirit, My Best Friend," and many other best-selling books.
Pastor Philip is happily married to Irene Saphira, and they are blessed with 3 children: Vanessa, Jeremy, and Warren.
